Chaldon and Caterham Floral Club

The Chaldon and Caterham Floral Club meet every third Tuesday at 2pm prompt, at the United Reform Church, Harestone Hill.

Most months we have a very interesting flower demonstrator from the South East area arranging flowers in pots, baskets or whatever fits the title of the demo. They also inform about flowers, plants and where they have been in competition, so it makes for a fun and interesting afternoon.

Everyone is welcome to come along – you have the chance to win the arrangements, buy from our sales and bring-and-buy tables, and have a cup of tea with biscuits.

The next meeting on Tuesday 18th April features Claire Bryant with the title “That will come in handy one day”.  For further information please contact Mrs Jennifer Newland, Tel: 01883 344317.

Satisfied Seniors Get Social, Get Active

This is not news to the 400 plus members of East Surrey Walkers but now confirmed by Age UK’s Index of Wellbeing research. Age UK recently looked at five key areas that affect health in the over 60’s (which means 21% of the population in Surrey).  

These were:-

Personal – Health – Social – Resource - and Local issues.

Two key factors emerged in those people that had high wellbeing scores - Physical activity and Creative / Cultural participation.

With Spring in the air, there is no better time to get out into the local countryside, to walk and talk with East Surrey Walkers.  With 4 walks a week, there is something for everyone, whether you like a short amble, long or short walks and even fitness walks.  Initial walks are free, and all you have to do is turn up (see Beacon page 3).

And that is not all: East Surrey Walkers host lunches, BBQ’s, Cream teas, events and holidays.

If you are one of the 47% people over 60 with a below average wellbeing score then East Surrey Walkers could just be for you.  As Del Boy used to say in Only Fools and Horses -You Know It Makes Sense“.
